Behind the Numbers:

M/I Homes had a strong fourth quarter, accounting for close to a third of the company’s full-year profit. The sales helped boost the company’s margin to 19.5%. CEO Robert H. Schottenstein credited the improved performance to newer communities and the company’s strategic geographic shift, including a move into the strong Texas market. As a result, the company ended the year with the highest sales backlog it has had in units and dollars since 2006.

M/I Homes’ fiscal year ended Dec. 31.
